Guelaguetza Bike Trip
The Guelaguetza Festival is a celebration in which representatives from the many communities of Oaxaca come together and celebrate the diversity of their traditions and cultures. The state of Oaxaca is home to 16 different ethnolinguistic groups and is incredibly diverse.
For the Guelaguetza, members of these groups gather wearing their traditional clothing and perform folk dances that are particular to their region. At the end of the dancing, they throw items to the crowd, products that come from the region they represent.
We will mix mexican traditions with more than 30 trails in 7 days. Oaxaca is considered de mecca of mexican Enduro scene with a big range of options for mountain bikers around the world.
